This chapter covers the energy resources in Iran. These resources are divided into two groups:
  • Non-renewable energy resources, which mainly include oil, gas and coal

  • Renewable resources whose significance has been noticed recently

The reserves of non-renewable resources or fossil fuels are cited in this chapter and compared to those in the Middle East and the rest of the world. The exploration potentials of such energy resource are also discussed.

This chapter also talks about the significant non-renewable energy resources and their status quo. Among this type of energy resources geothermal, solar and running water resources are included.
